fantastic find then lost

Many years ago my then boyfriend and I were wandering around the 2nd hand markets. I saw a lovely plain ring with 10 small diamonds. I asked the price and bought it. I had it cleaned and polished, the ring looked brand new.

It was such an easy ring to wear until I put on a bit of weight and had to take it off. I put it away in a safe place, or so thought.

Fast forward many years to a time when the kids were getting older. I was clearing out things we didn't use anymore.

Tossed out an old handbag.

Only to realise many months later that the fantastic 2nd hand piece of jewellery that we had bought was in fact inside that handbag that got tossed out.

They always say jewellery holds its history, perhaps this one wasn't meant for me.
